El Cabito

Featuring a million dollar view at a budget-friendly price, this hill top hotel offers guests a quiet environment surrounded by nature to unwind and relax in luxury.

Travelers looking to dine on-site will be particularly pleased with El Cabito, as it's in an area that's home to a fairly wide range of local restaurant options. There is a wide range of flavors here, and travelers with a hankering for Belgian and Caribbean food will not leave disappointed.

Located in the Samana Peninsula, northeast of Arroyo Del Cabo, El Cabito offers a warm welcome to visitors who are thinking about lodging in this part of the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic. From this accommodation, the center of Las Galeras is a short distance away to the west-southwest.


Two cabanas and camping sites are available here, with hammocks and simple mattresses laid out in tree houses providing a unique place to sleep during your island getaway. If you choose to stay in a cabana, you'll find them to be charming little nooks with palm-thatched roofs, and a private bathroom.
